Performance appraisal reactions are an important factor in performance appraisal that affects employee performance. This study examines the effects of performance appraisal reactions on employee performance mediated by employee engagement variables. A quantitative study was conducted on 96 samples from 2,808 civil servants of the Ciamis District, Indonesia, which implements electronic performance appraisals. The questionnaire uses a five-point Likert scale. Data were processed by SEM-PLS and analysed using descriptive and inferential statistical analysis. Results showed that performance appraisal reaction has a positive and significant impact on employee engagement, employee engagement has a positive and significant effect on employee performance, reaction performance appraisal has a positive and significant effect on employee performance and employee engagement partially mediated the relationship between performance appraisal reactions with employee performance. This study suggests further research on loci with different characteristics and the use of the longitudinal method is necessary.
